phoenix visualizes how the world is turned upside down when in hospital and how you have to give so much of yourself up. This is transcended by the glimmer of light and colour within the safe spaces that inhabit the hospital.

phoenix was exhibited alongside the work of Emma Fisher and Eszter NĂ©methi as part of the beyond the box exhibition. phoenix was created in response to the experience of being Cloudlands Artist in Residence in The Children’s University Hospital, Temple Street, Dublin. The exhibition was curated by Katy Fitzpatrick and attempted to make the invisible world of the hospital visible.
